BMW has recently introduced the facelifted (LCI) versions of their X5M and X6M models, complete with major external and interior improvements. The front of the vehicle has been given a facelift with a new fascia, new headlights, a new grille, and a lower bumper. The X5 model also features new taillights at the back.
Production of the updated models will begin in April at BMW‘s South Carolina site. The X5M Competition will be priced at $123,295, while the X6M Competition will be priced at $128,195.
Both the X5M and X6M models will be powered by an S68 4.4L twin-turbo V8 engine with a 48v mild hybrid system. With BMW’s M xDrive technology and an 8-speed transmission, the setup delivers a total output of 617 horsepower and 553 lb-ft of torque to all four wheels. The mild hybrid system’s motor generates an additional 12 horsepower and 147 lb-ft of torque. Thanks to these enhancements, the X5M and X6M can achieve 0-60 mph in under 3.7 seconds.
The V8 engine also features an e-blow-off regulator, a redesigned cross-bank exhaust manifold, and a stronger crankshaft drive. Additionally, the cars come equipped with a new exhaust system, and the gearbox features lower gear ratios.
BMW has made significant improvements to the interiors of both the X5M and X6M models. They will come equipped with iDrive 8, which includes a large 14.9-inch infotainment display and a 12.3-inch digital cluster. The interiors also feature ambient lighting and new temperature vents. Another feature included in the optional Driving Assistance Professional Package is Highway Assistant, which enables drivers to take their hands off the wheel on limited-access highways at speeds up to 85 mph (137 kph).
